"WE'RE ALL FRIENDS"
by Seth Loconto
Four years gone by.
Doesn't seem that long.
But I did my best to write
Some memories in a song.
All that wasted time I want back again
And I'll spend it all with you — all my friends
We're all friends.
Some have run to us.
We have run to some.
We've all done crazy things.
That were really dumb.
But I still have my whole life to spend
And I thank the Lord for all of my friends
We're all friends.
What will become of us?
Now that we are out of school
Will you remember me?
Cause I'll remember you.
Four years have past but they never will be gone
All our memories will go on and on and on.
So lets say so long.
And not say good-bye.
As we all depart
The tears flow from our eyes.
But I don't want this to be the end
Of this special love we have between friends
We're all friends
We're all friends Forever.
